Big win kicks off 2018
First win at home secured for 2018
King's started 2018 with a bang, posting a strong win over near rivals RBS.
However, the home team started sluggishly, conceding a try straight from the kick-off. The first 10 minutes didn't go well, with the RBS pack getting the upper hand in both scrum and maul. King's went 0-10 down but started to rally and put some phases together to score four tries in the first half.
The second half started much the same with early RBS pressure leading to a try. Eventually King's got their rhythm and scored a few nicely taken tries.
All in all it was a scrappy game with King's defensive organisation and workrate questionable at times. Still, a 61-24 victory is a good enough start to the year - with plenty to build on in the week.
